Upopoy National Ainu Museum and Park

Plenty to see and do! Let's explore Ainu culture!

As a center for the revival and development of Ainu culture, this facility is a place to learn about and convey the history and culture of the Ainu people. Visitors can watch dance performances and experience playing the "mukkuri" and "tonkori" musical instruments used in the dances. There are also a variety of programs to experience and enjoy the culture, such as cooking and tasting meals that embody the wisdom of living amidst the natural environment.

You can spend a relaxing and fulfilling day with the beautiful scenery of Lake Poroto, surrounded by rich nature. We await your visit.
